Production: A 100% Mencia wine from 60 years old vines growing on gentle slopes on clay and slate soils. Hand harvested bunch by bunch, fermented with selected wild yeast, aged during nine months in new and used French and American oak barrels and followed by an extra six-month rest in bottle.
Dominio de Tarés was one of the newcomers in the area attracted by the Mencía grape’s potential, established in 2000, its first vintage was in 2001 and since then it has not stopped producing wines with astonishing results, excellent wines from the autochthonous Mencía and Godello varieties, elegant and complex wines reflecting the quality of the terroir where they come from.
Situated in the province of León, the heartland of the Mencía grape, the winery is surrounded by high quality vineyards, old vineyards with vines between 40 and 90 years of age growing on a terroir with an extraordinary potential in a privileged area, a mixture of slopes and terraces, the soil being alluvial at river level and clay and slate in the slopes. They work 30 ha. of own vineyards and about the same quantity of rented vineyards. At the winery, the work is carried out on the philosophy of minimal intervention, keeping all the interferences to the minimum to create more authentic, natural and expressive wines.
Tasting Notes: Deep Ruby color, beautifully intense aromas, infused with red and black berries confiture, scents of spice, licorice, clove and touches of vanilla. Full-bodied and soft textured, balanced and smooth with very soft tannins and a fresh and pleasantly long finish.
Notes: Drinking beautifully now - 2022.
